"You get really good at crying and taking your clothes off"

Last year my friend, actress Matilda Ridgway, played Ophelia in Bell Shakespeare's nationally touring production of HAMLET. When asked, in a schools audience Q&A in Canberra, how she was able to cry on cue as Ophelia, she replied:

"Well, as a female actress you get really good at crying and taking your clothes off – sort of like how the male actors get really good at sword fighting and having all the dialogue."

I've been thinking a lot about Matilda's words as I've been developing my next project. I'm still working out what exactly it is so more on that soon, I hope.
